VAS Edward Heffernan Drawing Exhibition 2022

Location: Cato Gallery & Mackley Members' Room


Opening Night, Wednesday 2 November at 7pm

The 'Edward Heffernan Memorial Drawing Prizes' are awarded in honour of Edward Heffernan, past president of VAS from 1977 to 1980. He served on the VAS Council for 12 years and was also awarded the Distinguished VAS Service Award, Honorary life Membership, VAS Fellowship and the Order of Australia Medal for his services to Arts.

This exhibition is made possible through a bequest from the estate of his wife Maree Elizabeth Heffernan, who was the proprietor of the Gordon Edgerton Gallery and assisted Edward with editing the Victorian Artists Society’s Journal. 

The judge for this year's exhibition will be Warren Crossett. Warren is an artist based in Melbourne, Australia. His work is often an ode to the past, with elements of the old masters, surrealism, and contemporary art. Often employing symbols and metaphors of contemporary existence. When depicting general subjects the philosophy of beauty in simple things is displayed. He began his career as an illustrator producing artwork for many different areas, from children’s books to national and international blue chip companies.

In late 2015 he moved his attention to fine art only. His subject matter ranges from traditional portraiture, conceptual themes, and portraits with incorporated symbology, landscapes, some still life, private commissions and even abstract work. 

In 2015 he won the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize, and since then has been a finalist in the Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award, a finalist in the National Portrait Gallery Award ‘The Darling Prize’, exhibited in the Salon De Refuses for the Wynne Prize as well as a finalist for the Doug Moran Prize in 2021 and a semi-finalist on 3 other occasions.
